Speed run of Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike as Wedge with Special weapons/upgrades done on June 13 2005.
This run of rebel strike is the 3rd run I've done and definately much better than the others. I initially did a run which wasn't very good. The run suffered from bad mistakes and just plain horrible strats. I've had 2 other goes at this game, first one which had quite a lot of mistakes, and then this one. This run definitely is good from what I can see, even though that it does have some mistakes. Before pointing out things from the run I have to give a big thanks to Stefan Mahrla (German F-Zero GX player) for helping me out on Deception at Destrillion, Fondor Shipyard Assault and Triumph of the Rebellion. He let me know of various time saving techniques that I didn't know of. All the other levels have strats that I came up with myself. Here are the comments for the levels:
Revenge Of The Empire - This is one of the best times in the run. I managed to stay fast throughout. I lost some time at the shooting section at the end however.
Raid At Bakura - This level is timed, so it wasn't wide open to mistakes. However, when shooting the Ion Guns at the 2nd transport the game must have got the B trigger stuck and the Ion charge wouldn't happened. That made me loose a few seconds.
Relics Of Geonosis - This level went well, but I didn't hit the Clone Trooper Ship well at the 1st turret on the land section, and therefore I had to take it out by using the turrets 3 times, instead of 2, which made me loose a few seconds.
Deception At Destrillion - This is one of the worst executed levels. At the start with the Tie Hunters, the Concussion Missles many times went all over the place, and multiple targeted one hunter most of the time. This caused me to use the lasers to take out the last few, and that costed me quite some time.
Guns Of Dubrillion - This is the best executed level. I went through the level really fast and the turbines at the end went down really fast (and I pretty much got lucky there too).
Fondor Shipyard Assault - Doing this level fast is quite easy, and it went really good.
Speeder Bike Pursuit - Like Destrillion, this level was a bit sucky. I didn't boost much and I many times went into the air (and I found out after my run was done that rising makes you loose time :S ). I also crashed once. I blame this level on me getting really nervous though :P
Triumph Of The Rebellion - This level went well. I had some bumping and pushing on the on-foot part but that didn't make me loose much.
The total for all levels add up to 28:03. I hope you enjoy the run ;)
